Odyssey House awarded 2 new federal grants

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently awarded Odyssey House two separate grants totaling $2.3 million. Both grants are for a period of three years.

The first grant, for $1.4 million, will enhance our comprehensive services for pregnant and postpartum women in residential substance abuse treatment. Odyssey House President Dr. Peter Provet described the grant as a “significant investment in the depth and range of services we offer mothers in our Family Center programs. This new award gives us the resources to do more: more family therapy, more family reunification, and more community outreach.”

A second $900,000 grant will support the Bronx Urban Youth Initiative (BUY-IN), which provides substance abuse treatment services to teens and young adults, 18-24 years of age. “Partnership with SAMHSA/CSAT will allow us to deepen the range of services we currently offer at-risk youth and families, and bring additional federal dollars to underserved New York City communities,” said Dr. Provet.
